    I am currently teaching Pentecost in a year 3 class and must admit I have been finding it quite difficult to get over the concept of the wind and flames being the Holy Spirit!!! Decided to make it fun and have read and re read a child friendly story and have used windmills to represent the wind and orange pieces of paper to be the flames - have had the children acting it out - some being disciples and the others being the wind and the flames. It does seem to have worked as they have been quite enthusiastic and can now retell the story. Not sure if any of that will have helped - only my second week of induction in my new job :)

    I used the online story on request.org.uk and then the children made a collage of fire. They enjoyed doing that!!!!
  9. Hi Just wondering if you still have stuff for year 3/4 pentecost. I would really appreciate it. I'm struggling for ideas. My email is kit1@live.ie
